Can anyone elaborate on how you configure a printer to work with AccPac Plus Windowing System Manager SP2 ver 7.0.

The operating system is Windows XP 32 bit, the printer is an Oki Data ML 321 Turbo.

Sorry if I shouldn't post here, but I didn't see where this was explained.

Thank you in advance.

As mentioned in the previous thread:
Does the printer print when not in ACCPAC Plus? Try dir > lpt1:
If nothing prints, then the printer or port is not set up properly and the problem does not lie with ACCPAC Plus.

Mainstream support for Windows XP was discontinued in 2009. ACCPAC Plus has not received any R&D or upgrades since the late 90's and was totally discontinued in 2006. Your client can purchase Adagio (the natural, easy, windows based upgrade path for ACCPAC Plus users), easily convert their ACCPAC Plus data and be up and running in no time with no more worries about their accounting system failing with the resulting damage to their business. Continuing to run ACCPAC Plus is a bad business decision.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep the hardware that most ACCPAC Plus users run operating and if it fails, to find a replacement. Same is true with dot matrix printers.

Try Googling a solution, for example:
'printing from dos in windows xp'

Or, have a look at this:
[url=How to print to a network printer from an MS-DOS-based program in Windows XP]https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help...program-in-wind[/url]

If you would like to contact us, I can attempt to help them get their ACCPAC Plus to print.

Hi Kiel:
Any luck?
I would be happy to do a remote demo of Adagio for your client so they can see all the improvements in Adagio and how easy it is to print! We could do this with their data converted to Adagio so it looks familiar or sample data.
